    • Containerization technologies such as Docker and Podman 
  • Organized, detail-oriented, and with an ability to work both independently and collaboratively

  • MS in Computer Science, Information Technology, or related technical field 
  • Experience in:
    • Full web-service stack, including databases, logging, and monitoring 
    • Project tracking tools such as Jira
    • Deploying and maintaining artifact repositories (such as Nexus, Artifactory)
    • Deploying and configuring static and dynamic code analysis tools (such as SonarQube, Coverity)
